MSU Museum turns construction work into steam tunnel exhibit

Scott Pohl/WKAR

The parking lot in front of the MSU Museum has disappeared. In its place, there are steam shovels, enormous piles of dirt and a deep, deep hole. Workers are in the midst of an ongoing project to maintain the university’s extensive steam tunnel system.It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the folks at the MSU Museum have turned these lemons into lemonade. They’ve turned the fencing around this construction project into a pop-up display where you can learn more about the history of steam tunnels on campus.

Acting Director Lora Helou explained it all to Current State’s Scott Pohl.
